Monty Python & The Holy Grail. Original Poster For"An Evening With John Cleese Featuring A Screening Of Monty Pythonand The Holy Grail."

by John. Cleese

Publication: 1965

First edition. Original 11" x 17" color poster for this John Cleese event at which Cleese appeared and screened MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, and then discussed the film with the audience. The poster has a green background with two medieval knights fighting, four color picyures from the film, and a color portrait of Cleese. The poster states in part, "Co-creator of the Monty Python Flying Circus and star of numerous films including A FISH CALLED WANDA, the comically gifted actor and writer, John Cleese, has lent his delightfully wry witticisms and memorable voice to a host of projects from FAWLTY TOWERS to SHREK THE THIRD. Cleese will introduce the hilariously farcical MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL and answer audience questions about his side-splitting depiction of the Black Knight and this landmark work following the screening." The event was a fund raiser and advertised largely by flyers. Posters were made available for highly trafficked areas but due to cost, the number of posters produced for this event was limited. Cleese has been seen in the James Bond movies in the role of "R" the man who replaced "Q" played by Desmond Llewellyn. A unique item suitable for framing. Fine copy.
